This is one of the best WWII films ever made.

This story gives us a brief glimpse into what for so very many people was a way of life during a terrible period in mid-20th century.

I'm not familiar with the actors but the acting was very good.

Can a black and white movie with no background music be any good? Try this one out. It's a gripping story. Definitely a period piece, but a well told story should speak for itself without the need for any special glitter.

What is there to say, this is a rousing World War II film and one of the best. But it gets little acclaim or attention. Great cast, great adventure and great atmosphere.

I like movies that were filmed before the war was over. You see a sober, more realistic perspective. Wonderful story of the brilliance and bravery of the Dutch Underground.

Very simple, but exactly the way it was. Made very well. The film was not in the best of shape, but the content was so very good. The acting was also quite simple, but that's how it was in 1942. Watching this film makes you wonder how really tough things were then and then you realize that's the way it was, plain and simple. Watch this movie. You will enjoy it. BTW, another great movie to watch from the same era, but much better is " A WING AND A PRAYER" starring Don Ameche . Now this is a super movie which I have watched so many times I have lost count. I just love this movie and you will too.

You have to realize that these movies were made during the war and are part of the war propaganda machine.
Taken as such they are great pieces of history.

As long as you're not expecting hi-def, this film, made at the height of the war, gives a good picture of an heroic people doing their best to fight the Nazi juggernaut. It tells the tale of the Dutch doing their best to smuggle a down British air crew back to England. I don't want do give too many details, but I guarantee your time won't be wasted.

This is one of the best WWII films ever made. A tribute to the British people who fought and endured WWII.

An early war film that covers the experience of a Wellington crew that has to bail out over occupied Dutch territory and how they attempt to get back to England. Strong story and acceptable acting. Not an action flick, but worth watching.
